Thanks for the warning Ralph, 

I think I'm almost there. I discovered that the openmotif Makefile puts your libs and headers exactly where they should be to be broadly accessible. /usr/X11R6/lib and /usr/X11R6/include . I can now almost compile MEDM. The problem is:

make -C O.darwin-x86 -f ../Makefile TOP=../../../.. T_A=darwin-x86 install
/usr/bin/c++ -o medm  -L/Users/andrewwagner/EPICS/base-3-14-11/lib/darwin-x86 -L/Users/andrewwagner/EPICS/extensions/lib/darwin-x86 -L/usr/X11R6/lib       -arch i386     (etc ....)

ld: warning: in /usr/X11R6/lib/libXm.dylib, file was built for unsupported file format which is not the architecture being linked (i386)
Undefined symbols:

This is due to the fact that openmotif compiles with default gcc (i.e. i686-apple-darwin10-gcc-4.2.1) but EPICS compiles with i386 (see -arch i386 above). How do I hack the EPICS Makefiles to build something other than i386? I believe that if all -arch options are unset then it should use the default 64 bit compiler. How do I do this? Alternatively I could recompile openmotif in i386.

Cheers, 

Andrew

I was able to compile openmotif and install the programs but unfortunately its Makefile and the EPICS/extensions Makefile are incompatible. They seem to expect libraries to be built with different rules and put in different locations. The .h files medm needed where in openmotif-2.3.0/lib not /include and a library file libXm.a appears to never be built with the Makefile from openmotif.org <http://openmotif.org> . I get the error:

Is there a good how-to manual for installing MEDM on OS X (or any os)? I've searched tech-talk and there definitely seem to be some pitfalls. For instance Motif 2.30 should be used instead of 2.32 to avoid some odd behavior. Thanks very much for the help.
